Eastern Wind  Chris de Burgh

Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
Intro: Em - D - Em - D - Am - Em
Well my [Em]furrow[D]s are filled with c[Em]orn,
I have my[Em] wom[D]an to keep me w[Em]arm,
But there's one t[Em]hing that I do [C]fear,
That Eastern w[D]ind is getting n[Em]ear,
There's a shotgun beside my bed,
This is my country, where I was born and bred,
But I am sure, as the willow will grow,
That Eastern wind is going to blow,
[D]Blowing a hole in my [Em]life, [C]Eas[D]tern w[Em]ind,
[D]Running away with my [Em]life, E[C]ast[D]ern w[Em]ind;[D]
There's a woman who reads the stars,
She sees Warlords on the planet Mars,
And she said, "Boy, you'd better beware,
That restless wind is getting near,
Blowing a hole in your life, Eastern wind,
Running away with your life, Eastern wind..."
[C]Th[B7]ey are coming, they are coming,
they are c[G]oming, look out!
In my dream, I saw a crowd,
They were burning the palace down,
I saw a mad old man, and I ran to the door,
And then that wind began to roar,
And when they come, they'll find me here,
I will not run, they will not see my fear,
And I will fight to the very end,
Before that wind I will never bend,
If they're blowing a hole in my life, Eastern wind,
Oh running away with my life, Eastern wind,
Taking the plough from my hands, Eastern wind,
Taking every bit of my land, Eastern wind...
Outro: Em D C D repeated improved and fade out
